Subject: really grim television
This episode is from 1954 and it is surprisingly grim - especially for the times!

A nuclear bomb goes off the the Dr (a real palooka-looking Richard Boone) must deal with the aftermath.

Civil Defense is prominent, & CONELRAD radio keeps them informed.

If you grew up during the Cold War, still spooky.
